Whenever there’s a shooting spree
I’ve learned to have no doubt this
Is when the NRA will insist this is
Not the right time to talk about this.
In related news, when Wall Street crashed
Causing panic in the world & our nation
Fortune 500 execs claimed this wasn’t
The right time to discuss regulation.
These crises on multiple fronts will go on
For, to hazard a guess, ever and ever.
The only time the powerful want to have
Such discussions is basically … never.
